A Beautiful Mess – Messy Box Subscription Review – March 2017
Each shipment features cohesive colors and patterns. The individual designs are unique, but they look like they’re all part of the same (adorable) family.
My Subscription Addiction pays for this subscription. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Messy Box
The Cost: $24.99 a month ($19.99 a box with an annual subscription)
The Products: Each box is filled with items to scrapbook with including paper and cards, stickers, embellishments, and special items. Each month is color-coordinated and comes with a different technique theme.

Set of 4 Scrapbooking Sheets (9″ x 12″)
These sheets are the largest and the lightest weight of the box. They’re card stock sheets with a matte finish, but they seemed just a tad less stiff than the other items in the box.
The theme this month is gardening, and I am loving plants and the raindrops prints!
Set of 4 Large Journal Cards (4″ x 6″)
These journal cards are made of light card stock and have designs on either side. Here are the flip sides:
I like that some of the flip sides are fill-in for customization.
Set of 8 Small Journal Cards (3″ x 4″)
Again, these cards have designs on the back as well:
Set of 12 Square Journal Cards (3″ x 3″)
More double sided cards! I love the pastel colors and the succulent illustrations!
If you aren’t using these for scrapbooking, they could work well as gift tags, too.
Every month, Messy Box includes a few extras in addition to the standard scrapbooking cards and sheets.
This month we got a stamp pad and some garden-inspired stamps.
I really like this cement grey ink!
Wooden Leaf Cut-Outs
These cut-outs range in size from 1 inch to 3 inches across and are thin enough to be glued on a scrapbook page. (I think they would be an unexpected decor addition to a wrapped gift, too.)
Verdict: I think Messy Box does a great job of consistently delivering gorgeous designs in beautiful palettes. You can definitely buy planner items cheaper elsewhere, but everything in this box is exclusive to A Beautiful Mess, so if you like these designs, the value is definitely there!
